Born in Newport News, Virginia, Brittany Tiera is the youngest of five girls. Her singing talent was discovered when she was just three years old. Following her dynamic performances in multiple local talent shows, her mother drove her nine-year-old daughter three hours to the Washington, D.C-based auditions for “Star Search,” the largest talent show on national television at the time. Brittany stunned the judges with her powerful voice, beating out 75,000 contestants to appear on the show. She failed to win, and later said it was not her time. In 2008, Brittany appeared on BET’S “106 & Park,” winning the Wild–Out Wednesday female R&B competition.
